Useful WordPress Plugins

Here I have collected plenty of useful WordPress plugins that will help every web developer working with WordPress. I can recommend all of them because I bought them myself (if it’s premium version) and use them on real own projects and for clients. No longer I do projects without these special tools. They safe me and my clients time and work properly. —David Decker

When it comes to Twitter and WordPress you’ll find billions of plugins out there but a lot of them are “rubbish” I have to say! WordTwit Pro just works like you ever wanted and expected such a plugin to work. I used the free version for years and jumped over to the pro version the day it was released. You’ll never regret it! More info & Buy it…

» WPtouch Pro 2.1+

It’s really from the practice and allows you reach your mobile visitors with same professional outfit and features as you built it for your other users. Just think twice! More info & Buy it…

» White Label Branding

Great for: agencies, developers, fully client-branded client-sites
This is the dream come true for your client sites! Just brand the backend and login/lougout pages in a way it fits with the client site and your agency for example. You can remove the WordPress logos, menus, have user role management and a lot more. This really helps me to just offer my clients a site they can use and consider their own—also when logged into the WP backend! More info & Buy it…
» For WordPress Multisite installs they offer the same thing as White Label Branding for Multisite with some special features for Multisite. You might check this out … More info & Buy it…

» WPML – WordPress Multilingual 2.3.0+

Great for: multlingual sites/ blogs, all in one solution with WP
As a German it’s not seldom I have to build multilingual websites for clients. My first choice for doing this is the very useful WPML Plugin. It recently got Pro but that made it even better: performance speed up and media translation and a lot more awesome features. It works well with mostly every theme, including frameworks like Genesis. I can really recommend it from my experience. More info & Buy it…

» 5sec Maintenace Mode

Great for: developers, agencies
There are some other great plugins for maintenance mode out there and I’ve used them. Recently, I just had problems with cache plugins. This premium plugin did work also with cache plugins enabled and is also offering 6 great page templates for the maintenace site. If that wasn’t enough you also get a countdown counter and a nice options page. Really a time saver, looks great and the (HTML) templates are customizeable. I want not more anymore :-) More info & Buy it…

» 5sec Proper 404

Great for: every WP website or blog; just the “basic” stuff …
I often work with widget page templates for the 404 error pages which is really great with Genesis. For other needings or other themes you might want some proper plugin. This one comes in and really does a great job. Just define a regular WP page and make it your error statement page. Then drop in some shortcodes from the plugin and you’re done. Should really be the WordPress default you might think once it’s activated :) More info & Buy it…

» Fancy Text Widget

Great for: attention grabbers, affiliate stuff, marketing, copywriting, tweets, facebook like buttons, etc.
Sometimes you something to show off or grab some attention. This really fance widget does the job. It’s nicely done a small but great function. No more, no less. Just try it out! More info & Buy it…
